Kinky Icons: Past and Present Pinups

Dominatrix in Black Latex

There are many people who have been icons of all things kinky, even when being salacious wasn’t as popular or accepted as it is now.

BDSM icons who have paved the way for everyone to let their freak flags fly!

Bettie Page is sometimes referred to as the queen of pinups, but she was also the queen of bondage! She did bondage photo shoots in magazines all the way back to the 1950s. There is also video footage of the dark-haired beauty dominating other girls and getting tied up herself. For some in that era, it was the first time they had ever seen such images, and thus she became very influential in some peoples’ sexual development!

Larry Townsend is the pseudonym of the author who wrote The Leatherman’s Handbook, which is an important book for BDSM leather culture. Published in 1972, it describes many of the cultural practices of gay leather culture. Larry was also an activist, having worked to protect gay men and their allies from arrest during protest and in other volatile situations at a time when there was still a lot of discrimination against gay people and BDSM.

Madison Young is a modern BDSM and queer porn performer. She is well known for being not only a porn star, but also an activist and a creative person. She has received awards for her work in bondage and suspensions, as well as awards from AVN, a well respected adult film industry awards show. She is considered a sex positive educator as well as a BDSM educator, and more recently has started making her own porn movies. “Madison Young is kind of a modern sexual revolutionary,” says Barbara, a media coordinator for BDSM Date. “She started out as a BDSM and bondage enthusiast and has taken her love of kinky sex very far!”
